Inspired by solving the student loan problem, we want to build a butler that can understand your financial situation and make informed recommendations on whether certain financial related actions are viable, such as buying an expensive phone.
What it does
Alfred, the financial butler analyses all your financial transactions, income and liabilities to make a profile on your spending pattern. With that, Alfred is able to tell you the impact to your financial health for making certain unusual large purchases.
How we built it
The app is mobile based which is built in Flutter. We call Plaid's API for financial data, and the analysis model is ran in Python with Flask post the APIs to Flutter.
Challenges we ran into
We were not able to get matching data between transactions and liabilities from Plaid, so we had to improvise some transaction data in this example.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have made it more interactive by integrating a speech recognition tool, so that the user can speak into the phone and get the financial advice.
What we learned
What's next for Alfred, Your personal Financial Butler
To have more functionalities in building the financial profile of the user.
